Martin, Hamburger up; Cruz, O’Day to DL
The Rangers called up Leonys Martin and Mark Hamburger before Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
To clear room for both of them on the active roster, the team officially placed both Nelson Cruz and Darren O’Day on the 15-day disabled list. Cruz has a strained left hamstring and Darren O’Day has right shoulder inflammation.
Since Martin signed a Major League contract with the Rangers in May, he was already on the 40-man roster. To make room for Hamburger, who was not previously on the roster, the club placed Triple-A reliever Ryan Tucker on release waivers.
